    That would be a great job! I used to think the two shows that I'd love to host were the ones where the guys went to different countries to drink. I always wondered why they didn't have women doing that job, until one birthday....

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    I'd be one of those camera people that record wildlife for shows like Africa. I'd travel a lot, meet new cultures and learn different languages.

I would cook for them and we could have long talks into the night about deep philosophical topics and of course walk in the woods during the day.

    Crabbcakes with all your globe trotting I hope you will be able to make a stop in my neck of the woods. I will make you a feast!
    Hmmm... Feasts are nice, indeed. Very, very nice, in fact... And I have never been on the West coast, much less Californee...

    Hey Joanie!

    Um, either I have not drunk enough in my life, or I am dense, or both... Help?! Perhaps a wee bit of euphemistic language?

    In my perfect life, I am not living in North America. I am earning a living from writing and I live in a small villa with a terrace over looking an ocean. Ideally, I live in southern Spain, France or Italy. Climate is warm, stable and I thrive on living a simple life of whole food cooking, learning new languages and spending my time reading, and writing. Walking, exercising, lifting are part of my daily routine. I live life as a minimalist -- a simple, quality life. I get around by riding my bike and from time to time I explore new areas in my very small austin mini. Life is simple and fulfilling and I live to 100 in good health, living independently -- not burdening the 'system' or my children. This is my perfect life.

    a fine-artist, painter!
    and i'm pursuiting it, after quitting my job and eight years of sciences.

    be afraid not.
    life is very short.
    and plus, it might "betray" you when you least expect it to...
    so... enjoy, fight and go for it: now.

    Okay, well I'm currently working on all of these things, but I'd like to write a comedy blog that reviews restaurants/venues and incorporates my art (see avatar), sell art prints, bags and shirts (am just starting prints and bags, my husband is setting up a web store), and making bank writing goth/punk erotica (writing one now). I would also like to record music with my husband.

    * note- I used to be a professional freelance journalist, but I hated my sleazeball editor. I'd like my own publication.

    I think some behaviors are tolerated more in men than in women. There's a phrase, "one tequila, two tequila, three tequila, whore," that sort of explains it.

    I have never heard that phrase! How would you go about getting a travel show?
